The radical 2003 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon was the most capable vehicle ever produced by the Jeep brand. A new four-door Wrangler variant was launched and took the industry by storm. Wrangler Unlimited opened up the world of capability to people who needed the room and utility of four doors. In 2006, Compass and Patriot were the first Jeep vehicles to reach into the small cross-utility segment.
An All-New redesigned 2011 Grand Cherokee was launched to rave reviews and refreshed in 2013 with many new styling cues and a new 3.0L EcoDiesel engine. The All-New 2014 Cherokee replaced the Liberty, promising to redefine the midsize segment. And in 2015, the Jeep brand entered the small SUV market with the Renegade, once again bringing capability and Jeep brand style to a whole new market.
